  Description     : This library allows you to OpenID-enable your Java webapp

 OpenID starts with the concept that anyone can identify themselves on the
 Internet the same way websites do - with a URI. Since URIs are at the very core
 of Web architecture, they provide a solid foundation for user-centric identity.
 The first piece of the OpenID framework is authentication -- how you prove
 ownership of a URI. Today, websites require usernames and passwords to login,
 which means that many people use the same password everywhere. With OpenID
 Authentication, your username is your URI, and your password (or other
 credentials) stays safely stored on your OpenID Provider (which you can run
 yourself, or use a third-party identity provider).
